Tried that already... I mean, i have dual monitor setup, one on dvi one on vga cause it's too stupid to grow a dvi input Anyway, i'm logging out, it's actually 11:40pm here and i have classes tomorrow. You all have a pleasant evening, I'm out!
PS: all the hex editing i did was for some games back in the good days (diablo and a couple of other cheat-worthy-just-for-fun games)
I've installed the only driver which windows installed automatically after finding my card. Then in order to install new drivers I have to restart and after restarting it freezes with artifacts like I've said.
For those of you who seemed to had a driver/windows problem, have you try fresh windows installation? I highly recommend using Vista x64 instead of 7, due to the nature of 182.08 driver which was originally developed to run on Vista x64.
I had the same issue before, but after a fresh windows installation, everything works smoothly now...
